Review: The Fox Inheritance

The Fox Inheritance
by Mary E. Pearson
The Jenna Fox Chronicles, book two

Book Description:
Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries.

Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead.

Everyone except Jenna Fox.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox is one of my FAVORITE science fiction books! It is amazing how it all unfolds as Jenna slowly regains her memory and realizes what has happened to her...what her parents have done to her...

This follow-up is another great book.  It was really interesting, because rather than being from Jenna's perspective, it is from her friend Locke's.  It is also set 260 years after the first book.  Again it deals with biomedical ethics and what truly makes us human.  This book is both entertaining and thought-provoking. 

Though not *quite* as good as the first book, I really liked seeing things through Locke's eyes. Definitely recommended for sci-fi lovers.
